Milwaukee Fishing Salmon Reports July18th 2010

By Capt. Jim Hirt

Milwaukee water is still cold. Chinooks of all sizes with fish to twenty pounds. Rainbows and Lake Trout are plentiful when fishing with all presentation. I haven't seen many Browns or Coho. Southwest wind has pushed the warm water out. Very good action in working 40 to 80 feet of water in White Fish Bay three miles north of Milwaukee's north gap. Let me tell you where and what to use. To see my how to video fish report go to

With 59 degree surface temperature 2,3,4,5,6 and 8 color lead core are working. Travel northeast out of the North Gap about 3 miles at a 50 degrees compass for the cold water that holds the fish. Look for fish from 10 to 40 down on all presentations. Slide Divers with 100 feet of line out are a steady producer with magnum Reaper Peacock or Fish n Chip spoons. Downriggers from 20 to 40 down on long lead spoons are my go to rig with magnum silver spoons. Customers are enjoying great action on Chinook salmon to 20 pounds. A combination of Salmon and Trout in all sizes are active. The boat speed of 2.1 gave the best results. Vulcans, Nestor Wobblers and Reapers are sold only on the web at Have a great fishing season.
